Austad has been the high bidder in each of the three years a hunting permit for a buck mule deer has been offered on Antelope Island. Counting the $305,000 he bid during the recent Western Hunting and Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City, Austad has paid $865,000 for the opportunity to kill three deer. He set a record for a deer hunting permit in auction last year with a $310,000 payment.

On a runway built for landing Space Shuttles, the single Miller Motorsports Park director drove a two-seat sports car at an unseen-on-this-Earth speed of 270.49 mph. And he was still accelerating when he had to begin braking. “When you’re running 270, you’re basically covering about one-and-a-half football fields a second,” Smith said. “You can run out of room pretty quick.” Smith was chosen for the Hennessey Venom GT’s re...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It’s something of an occupational requirement. “Nobody wants to hear it,” he says. “That’s not what we’re here for. We’re here to play music and have a good time.” So it may come as a surprise to many fans that Hansen suffered a spinal injury that kept him from making music in the usual ways for a significant portion of the last decade.
